A$AP Ferg, Kerby Jean-Raymond, TJ Mizell and more watch as Canelo fights for his family, country and the pursuit of excellence
NEW YORK, Dec. 17, 2018 — Hennessy, the world’s best-selling Cognac, celebrates Canelo Álvarez‘s second win of the year as he earns the WBA Super Middleweight World Championship, making him one of a select group of Mexican fighters to become a three-division world champion.
The victory marks another chapter in Canelo’s “Never stop. Never settle.” journey as he continues to fight for his family, country and fans. As the pride of Mexico and arguably the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world, Canelo continues to cement his legacy and showcase his relentless passion for being a champion both inside and outside of the ring.
Event attendees included A$AP Ferg, who earlier this year partnered with Hennessy to release an exclusive track celebrating family, and Pyer Moss designer Kerby Jean-Raymond, who earlier this year released a capsule collection inspired by Hennessy’s latest “Wild Rabbit” icon – Marshall “Major” Taylor.
Now in its second year, Hennessy’s partnership with Canelo and Oscar De La Hoya’s extensive Golden Boy Promotions roster is intended to encourage others to “Never stop. Never settle.” in their own life pursuits.
